Eurocup

The Eurocup competition is an annual wheelchair basketball club competition organised by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF), since 1976 for eligible European wheelchair basketball clubs.  Clubs qualify for the competition based on their performance in their national leagues.

There are 4 tiers of competition within the IWBF Eurocup: Champions Cup, Euroleague 1, Euroleague 2, Euroleague 3. Clubs are awarded points annually based on their performance within their respected Eurocup competition. The points go towards an overall IWBF European ranking which dictates which Euroleague competition the club teams qualify for in the subsequent year.
